Hey everyone, in my quest for a working stereo, i decided to leave it running for an hour to allow me to input the codes again. Well, it seems through all my foresight i killed my battery, now it comes the time to jump start the car...

I have a 635csi (e24) that tragically lost its onboard computer in a jump start. And my new car has no manual (I ordered one). So now i must find out a way to jump start the 525i. Is there anything I should know about jump starting this car? Do i need to remove any fuses?

I'm no expert on the E34, but my friend has one (a '95 530i), and I jumped him last month and he didn't do anything special--we just hooked up to the terminals and turned the key.

Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a &quot;Is this deal too good to be true?&quot; thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.

Alas, the issue has been resolved, upon removing the battery to take it to a local auto parts store to have them charge it. (mainly because i couldnt find a definitive answer on how to do it, and I already have a 635csi with a dead computer) So I took it there and they tested it. The battery had a dead cell, So it needed to be replaced anyway. New battery and it runs fine :) Thanks for all your help!
